    new guages - need input

    I am looking at investing into digital guages. What brands should I look at and what brands should I avoid? I want a good set but don't want to pay a bunch of money. Thanks for the input.

    I'm looking at the Testo 560. Pricey, but it is free to look.

    I have the testo and the Digi-Cools. Both are a good product, testo is not as field friendly as the digi-cool, and responds slower.

    I recommend the Digi-cool or YJ's over the testo's, but either way digital is the way to go!

    They had a recall on the new style shortly after they came out.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    i am deciding which set to buy as well...I like how the Digi cool has the Bar graph above the pressure reading. main reading updates on 1 sec or 5 sec or hold, and the bar graph updates every 1/4 sec. i cannot find anywhere on how often the testo updates..and it does not have the bar graph i found a lot of good videos of testo on utube.
